GREAT APARTMENT 4 MINUTES WALKING TO PASSEIG DE GRÀCIA

Villa de Gracia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Wi-Fi 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

You cannot be more centrally located! About the apartment, the sleeping area has one double room with a Queen size bed and wardrobe space. In the kitchen you will find an oven, burners, toaster, coffee maker, fridge,etc. The living area is very comfortable, cosy and naturally fully furnished with a sofa, satellite TV, DVD, dining table and chairs,… Naturally it is fully air conditioned and heated. This is truly an exceptional property in the absolute best position possible!! To cover some basics - Yes, all linen, towels, cutlery, crockery etc are provided.

The neighbourhood of Gracia is just one stop up from the top of Passeig de Gracia but it feels like a whole different world. Gracia was an independent town until the late 19th century and even now the community is small and tight. The people are exceedingly proud of their roots, they don’t say they come from Barcelona, they say Gracia.

The area is popular with artists and a generally bohemian crowd.. Plaça de Sol is the most renowned area of the neighbourhood, it’s lined with terrace cafes. However despite the trendy nature of Gracia it is also a very traditional barrio with a large elderly population which makes for an amusing and odd mix - and very entertaining people-watching!

Fontana and Diagonal are the metro stops, and from there you can get into the centre of the city, Paseo de Gracia in less than 5 minutes walking and Plaza Catalunya in less than 20 minutes.

Gracia is totally self-sufficient. That is to say you could stay in Gracia and never have to leave, there are good amenities of every sort, great bars, cosy cafes, a real Mediterranean lifestyle. Whilst everything like the buildings, streets and plazas are in much smaller scale than those in the centre of town there is some striking art nouveau architecture to be seen.

The area is quite safe and it is also quiet. Is perfect for those who want something a little bit different, those who perhaps have been to Barcelona before and want a different tourist experience. Although really because central Barcelona is so easily accessible from Gracia it is suitable for everyone.

One of the best features of Gracia is that there are not so many tourists so you feel like you’ve discovered something a bit new and diverse. Shopping is also good in Gracia, where new, arty boutiques stand next to traditional Spanish stores.

I stayed in this apartment for 10 days and it was perfect. I was alone and it was the perfect size for me. The location was excellent, it was close to great restaurants and Gaudi
Buildings were all within walking distance. The metro is also very close and there is lots of shopping just down the street. Joan and Elisabeth were very helpful and left a detailed package with things to see, places to go, where to eat, etc. they were awesome! I would definitely recommend staying there if you are in Barcelona.

Comfortable apartment, great area

This was a great area for us to stay in Barcelona. Having been to Barcelona before, I didn't want to stay near the crowded tourist areas. We were a short walk away from the metro, so the tourist areas were easily accessible. If we needed a taxi, there were usually many driving by on the main street one block over. The area around the apartment was terrific with grocery stores, restaurants and bakeries all within a few blocks. The apartment is on a quiet street so we didn't have to worry about a lot of noise. We also felt very safe walking around late at night.

We were traveling with our four month old baby in summer so being able to stay in an apartment with air conditioning and a washing machine was very important. Joan and Elisabeth provided us with a cute little crib, high chair and baby bathtub. We weren't expecting the bathtub and it was very much appreciated. The stairs to the second floor were a little daunting at first with the baby and stroller but we became very adept at it after a while.

Checking in and out was very easy. Joan met us at the apartment both times. Joan and Elisabeth were excellent hosts and would send us a note every now and then to see if we needed anything. The apartment was clean and the bed quite comfortable. Having wi-fi access was also great in helping us plan out the next day's activities. What we enjoyed the most was the list of nearby restaurants that Joan and Elisabeth left for us. We went to a good number of them, easily within 5 minutes walking distance and we were not disappointed!

We were very sad to leave when it was time for us to go. We got to feel like we were locals which was great.

Felt Like Home

A great location away from the crowds, but with the metro just 5 minutes away, it was easy to visit the rest of Barcelona (and for me, La Rambla and Gothic are actually walking distance: 8-10 km). I felt like a local, especially each evening hearing neighboring families and friends enjoying dinner across the alley or the courtyard. I loved walking to all the restaurants, cafes, and plazas in the area-- great recommendations from Joan and Elisabeth.

The apartment itself was clean and comfortable (the quiet air conditioner was a must in the heat of late June!). I didn't take advantage of the kitchen, but it was very nice having a few groceries on hand. I would definitely stay here again.

We visited Barcelona for the Primavera Sound festival, and this apartment was perfect. Joan and Elisabeth met us when we arrived and were very helpful throughout our stay.

The apartment itself is cute, very clean and perfect for a couple visiting the city. It is in a lovely area with many nice bars, cafes and a few nice squares where you can sit outside and enjoy the sun. In particular we enjoyed the bars Sol de Nit and Chatelet. The apartment is also only a 5 minute walk from the Metro.

We'd definitely recommend staying here!

Cute apartment in a GREAT area

This apartment was perfect for our stay in Barcelona. It was very clean and well-stocked and the owners not only left us great information about the city, but made themselves available to answer any questions we had. Our only complaint about the apartment itself is that it didn't yet have wifi during our stay. It wasn't a big deal because there were a few internet cafes close-by, but it would have been nice to have access to internet at home since ALL the TV channels were either in Spanish or Catalan. Also, if you plan on using the washing machine be sure to read the manual left by the owners because it was a little confusing.
The absolute best part about the apartment was the area it was in. We had great markets, bakeries, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and plazas all within a few blocks of the front door. We simply did not have enough time to explore all the greatness that Gracia had to offer!
On our next visit to Barcelona we would definitely stay in this apartment again!
Owner's Response: Hi Andra!

Thank you for the nice review and also for choosing our property for your vacation. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay.
We really appreciate your support and we look forward to having you back some time soon: now the Wi-Fi is working! ;)

Best regards from Barcelona!

Barcelona is located on the Mediterranean coast between the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Besòs and is bounded to the west by the Serra de Collserola ridge.

Founded as a Roman city, Barcelona became the capital of the Counts of Barcelona. After merging with the Kingdom of Aragon, it became one of the most important cities of the Crown of Aragon. Besieged several times during its history, Barcelona is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination and has a rich cultural heritage. Particularly renowned are architectural works of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner that have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The city is well known in recent times for the 1992 Summer Olympics.

Barcelona enjoys a Mediterranean climate. The summer's season lasts about 6 months, from May to October, although also in November and April sometimes there are temperatures above 20 °C (68.0 °F). Winters are mild.
